A Scanner Darkly movie review

A Scanner Darkly was released in 2006, and was written and directed by Richard Linklater.

It stars Robert Downey Jr,Keanu Reeves and Woody Harrelson.It is based on a Philip K Dick novel of the same name.It is about an undercover drug officer, investigating a drug called Substance D.

It deals with drug culture and the theme of paranoia.The film uses a technique called interpolated rotoscope, this is when an animator goes over the live-action footage. This gave the film a very distictive look.

With superb acting and an engaging unpredictable plot, I highly recommend this film.
